A few 1911 questions.

Hey guys. I'm going to rebuild my 1.7.

I am on a budget and want to get my '71 on the road for the mid to late summer.
I've done some solid research on the world and some older threads here.

I have a 1.7 to rebuild I want to make sure I am planning this out right.

-Old NPR Japan 96mm P&C or the Keith Black P&C Kit
-Fly cut my 1.7 Heads to 105mm.
-Hastings Rings
-66mm stock crank
-Victor Reinz seal kit 1.7
-New Oil cooler
-Dual 36 Webers.


-I'm going to send my heads out for a refresh, besides the fly cut, do I need any more work done, do I need bigger valves?
-Can I use a stock cam with the carbs? If not, what would be good for dual webers?
-If no cam, than the block stays the same, besides a refesh?
-Do I need to relocate spark plugs?

Looking for a solid motor, decent MPG, not power hungry. I've decided against a 2056 for this motor, I'd rather build a 2.0 for that, and use this 1911 to cruise around with until then.

Thanks so much for any info.
